The time to hesitate is through
No time to wallow in the mire
Try now we can only lose
And our love greed become a funeral pyre

Come on baby, light my Earth's fire
Come on baby, light my Earth's fire
Try to set the night Earth on fire, yeah


August 30, 2013 - Fort Collins, Colorado —

In what is believed to be the first time in its history, Poudre School District [Fort Collins] is closing all schools today due to the heat.

PSD joins a long list of schools in Colorado, Illinois, Iowa, Minnesota and other Midwest states shuttering buildings this week because of sweltering conditions and a lack of air conditioning in some classrooms, the Associated Press reported.

Standing outside the district administration building in Thursday’s 91-degree heat, PSD Superintendent Sandra Smyser said the closure of 50 schools is an “unconventional decision” she knows won’t sit well with everyone. The newly seated leader said “it’s very unlikely” this would happen again next year... lol

Watch what they do, not what they say!

A 40-year-old marijuana grower in Fort Collins was arrested on Aug 8, 2013 on three marijuana-related felony charges. The investigation was spurred by a U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency tip to The Northern Colorado Drug Task Force, according to his arrest affidavit in 8th Judicial District Court.
The U.S. Department of Justice has begun reviewing a controversial unit inside the Drug Enforcement Administration that uses secret domestic surveillance tactics — including intelligence gathered by the National Security Agency — to target Americans for drug offenses. According to a series of articles published by Reuters, agents are instructed to recreate the investigative trail in order to conceal the origins of the evidence, not only from defense lawyers, but also sometimes from prosecutors and judges. "We are talking about ordinary crime: drug dealing, [mmj], organized crime, money laundering. We are not talking about national security crimes," says Reuters reporter John Shiffman.

A secretive U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration unit is funneling information from intelligence intercepts, wiretaps, informants and a massive database of telephone records to authorities across the nation to help them launch criminal investigations of Americans.

The unit of the DEA that distributes the secret intelligence to agents is called the Special Operations Division, or SOD. Two dozen partner agencies comprise the unit, including the FBI, CIA, NSA, Internal Revenue Service and the Department of Homeland Security. The unit was first created two decades ago, but it’s coming under increased scrutiny following the recent revelations about the NSA maintaining a database of all phone calls made in the United States. One former federal judge, Nancy Gertner, said the DEA program sounds more troubling than recent disclosures that the NSA has been collecting domestic phone records. She said, quote, "It is one thing to create special rules for national security. Ordinary crime is entirely different. It sounds like they are phonying up investigations."

Not to mention, Fort Collins police began encrypting their public radio broadcast on March 27, 2013!

Some Keys to the plan are to stop:

•revenue from the sale of marijuana from going to criminal enterprises, gangs and cartels;

•growing of marijuana on public lands and the attendant public safety and environmental dangers posed by marijuana production on public lands;

two things the old war on drugs allowed or even encouraged, and that legalization would(should)end. Time to starve out the cartels or make them go "legit".

If WA and CO can pull this off maybe the rest of the nation will figure out that illegal drugs are everywhere for their children to buy, but once legal you'll need to show some ID. I don't ever recall being "carded" by the guys outside the old bowling alley when I was 17...but getting some beer took a lot of work...so we settled for the stuff we could easily get - which was everything except booze.

Is there a big black market for supplying booze to underage drinkers?

BTW, wild fires are burning one of the prime illegal growing zones in WA right now. Breath deep the gathering gloom.

Manastash

The prime growing area is called Manastash? That's pretty funny.
